The 69th Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann will take place in Drogheda and has grown over the years to be the largest and most unique cultural festival in the world. With attendance numbers in excess of 500,000 one can truly see its importance. Its significance is cultural, economic and social and is a tribute to all those who kept the cultural traditions of Ireland alive down through the decades.
For a great many musicians, Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann is the culmination of months of hard work and practice as they compete against fellow musicians, singers and dancers at local Fleadhanna so as to achieve the recognition of being an All-Ireland champion.
For others, Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann is a unique and welcoming festival featuring the very best of traditional arts and offering a wide range of activities to be enjoyed by all.
The Fleadh will have a significant emphasis on youth with children’s mid-morning sessions organised to run from Monday through to Thursday from 11am – 12pm in the Barbican Centre. It will also offer an extensive youth programme which aims to increase student’s awareness of Irish culture and tradition and encourage them to become actively involved in the Fleadh. Families will be well catered for with lots of events at Seachtain na Gaeilge and the Mid Morning Sessions in the Barbican Centre.
Tickets are available to purchase and the line-up of events, activities and performances, which will take place every day from Sunday 11th through to Sunday 18th August 2019, is available to view at fleadhcheoil.ie. You can also follow Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
